Edelman Krasin & Jaye File Suit in West Side Highway Bike Path…

The law firm of Edelman, Krasin and Jaye recently filed a lawsuit in the Manhattan Supreme Court (Case/Index No.157402/2018) on behalf of a client who was seriously injured in the NYC terrorist attack that took place on October 31, 2017.

The plaintiff was serving as a special needs bus matron when her vehicle was struck by a rented truck driven by ISIS-inspired terrorist Sayfullo Saipov. Saipov, an Uzbek native, allegedly drove along the West Side Highway bike path for almost a mile before slamming into the special needs bus at an intersection.

The attack took place on West and Chambers streets and was extensively reported on by major news outlets. Attorney Lawrence P. Krasin, Senior Partner at Edelman, Krasin and Jaye, discussed his client’s injuries and the pending litigation against the city with the New York Post on August 9, 2018, https://nypost.com/2018/08/09/bus-matron-hurt-in-nyc-terror-attack-sues-over-injuries/.

“The plaintiff underwent surgery for fractured right ribs, lumbar spine injuries, a collapsed lung and damage to her right shoulder,” Krasin told The Post. According to court documents, the impact of the crash threw the plaintiff across the bus and on top of two students.

The lawsuit contends that the city is liable for Charles’ injuries and damages, since it failed to install concrete barricades along the West Side bike path that would have stopped traffic from entering. The New York Post reported that just one day after the Halloween bike path attack, city workers finally installed barriers at nearly 50 intersections along the highway.

The 29-year old terrorist ultimately killed eight people in lower Manhattan last October. Several more were seriously injured.

The plaintiff is seeking $5 million in damages after the terrifying ordeal.
